Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai
He was born on 18.11.1689 in Hala Sind
in Hala Sindh and died at Bhit Shah Sind on November 1689 – 1 January 1752
He was a noted Sindhi Sufi scholar, mystic, saint, and poet, widely considered to be the greatest Muslim poet of the Sindhi language
His collected poems were assembled in the compilation Shah Jo Risalo, which exists in numerous versions and has been translated into English, Urdu, and other languages. His work has been compared frequently to that of the Persian poet Rūmī. Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Professor of Islamic studies at George Washington University, described Shah Latif as a “direct emanation of Rūmī’s spirituality in South Asia
His correspondence in Persian with contemporary scholar Makhdoom Moinuddin Thattvi, as contained in the Risala-i-Owaisi, bears witness to his scholastic competence:[1]
Beloved’s separation kills me friends,
At His door, many like me, their knees bend.
From far and near is heard His beauty’s praise,
My Beloved’s beauty is perfection itself.
— Bhittai [Sur Yaman Kalyan]
The Urs is a grand festival in Sindh, where people from almost every village and town of Sindh and from different cities of other provinces of Pakistan – rich and poor, young and old, scholars and peasants – make a determined effort to attend.
The Urs commences every year from 14th Safar (2nd month of Hijra calendar) and lasts for three days.[6] Along with other features, like food fairs, open-air markets selling Ajrak and Sindhi Caps etc.among others, and entertaining and competitive sports, a literary gathering is also held where papers concerning the research work done on the life, poetry, and message of Bhittai, are read, by scholars and renowned literary figures.

Yesterday while reading the blogs of other bloggers a phrase seized my present and carried me to my past.

After graduating from school, I was inquisitive and excited to be in college. Feeling a like a free bird. We could bunk classes, we could enjoy more in college than school’s strict DOS and DONTS environment. We met and made new friends from different schools and different back grounds. I believe every human being is a world in him.  Hence I’m very curious to know about new people and their life.

There I met two sisters. They looked very different from other girls in their clothes and behavior.  They were very composed, shy, sort of introvert and hesitant to mix with other girls.  This ignited the desire in me to know about them so I extended my hand to be friends with them. Cautiously but positively they responded back.  With time we became closer and things started to unveil between us. Saeeda were four sisters. Their mother was a midwife in a small private clinic. Their father was drug addicted and was just a liability on them. He only yelled abused, slept, ate beat anyone of them who came in front. They lived a miserable life in meager salary of their mother in one rented room. They were unprivileged but self respected people. All this description is common in our poor class, so not very astonishing. What amazed me more was how they studied and reached college level? They had no electricity and no other facility. So one day I asked this sensitive question. They said that they study at night in moon light.  Being girls they couldn’t go outside their home to study under street lights. They couldn’t even afford to buy kerosene oil to light a lantern or buy candles. This made me respect them more. We became very good and close friends. Their mother allowed them to visit our home so often they visited. It was pleasure and pride for our family to serve them. I learnt patience and commitment from them. Years later I came to know they got scholarship on merit and Saeeda and her sister became doctors. Saeeda was then married to a banker.

Their honesty, endurance, hard work and dedication earned them every facility. Allah helps those who help themselves

 

 

 

Last Friday on 5th February I went to attend a literary gathering. The  host and their hospitality was excellent. After the poetry reciting was over we headed towards the lift to go down

more than 12 poets, scholars, doctors and professors also got in the elevator joined.The elevator broke and within seconds it fell and i got double fracture in my right foot.

I request to please pray for my speedy recovery. Its so painful to be bedridden with severe pain

The Monastery of Bahira

Monastery of Bahira the monk

i have been hearing about this blessed tree in Jordan from my childhood but unfortunately never got a chance to see its photo or know the details.   i searched for today and got this info. So am sharing with you all about this miraculous fact

A recent research in Jordan leads way to yet another proof on legitimacy of Islam and its messenger Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم). For actual believers simple statements from Allah are adequate to believe the truth. But those who restrain from real faith might ask for solid evidences. Allah will show ample evidences on His realities time and again as a reminder to those who still disbelieve.

There are some people who are reluctant to believe the reality even after knowing the truth owing to their ego or pride. Another category of people will embrace correct faith by mercy of Allah upon viewing the evidences. Those who believe truth from Allah and set their lifestyle according to commands of Allah will be protected from pitiless hell fire and rewarded Paradise filled with immeasurable blessings.

So, humbly we introduce facts to those who might understand the truth and may by mercy of Allah turn to correct faith and religion.

“The people of the book know this as they know their own sons, but some of them conceal the truth which they themselves know.” Quran

Hundreds of evidences were given in ancient Vedas, Tourah and Bible (old Books) on appearance of the Last Messenger, Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم)  Many verses can be seen stating name, native and characteristics of the Last Messenger even in recent day copies of old Books though those books had gone through many human interventions and adjustments.

Thus people who know the Last Messenger from Allah from old Books were in anticipation of Him. Here comes story of Bahira, a Christian monk lived in Basra, south of Syria and his zeal to meet the Last Messenger. He happened to watch a caravan of Arabian merchants from Makah passing by and a young boy is being shaded by clouds wherever he goes. He at once understood significance of the boy and invited the caravan for a banquet.

All members of the caravan attended the feast except the boy whom he was anxiously waiting. So he looked out and found the boy resting under a tree. As per his knowledge of Bible only a Prophet will rest under that tree. So he urged the caravan members to bring that boy to the banquet. He quizzed the boy and concluded that He is the Last Messenger explained in Bible. Bahira convinced the boy’s uncle Abu Talib to return to Makkah with the boy as Jews are in search for Him to harm.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Religion is very easy, and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded.” Bukhari:V1N38

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “O God, grant me life as a poor man, cause me to die as a poor man and resurrect me in the company of the poor…” His wife asked him why he said that, and he replied: “Because (the poor) will enter Paradise (before) the rich. Do not turn away a poor man…even if all you can give is half a date. If you love the poor and bring them near you..God will bring you near Him on the Day of Resurrection.” Al-Tirmidhi:1376

There was a moment once on earth

 The life was clamped in trap of death

Being helpless; it pleaded to save!

But emblazing fire of hatred, treachery

You danced and celebrated your victory

That era was indulged in grave swamp

 A star then twinkled swiftly in the sky

He was Jesus who illumined the sky!

To eliminate betrayal and treachery

To purify the conceited smug spirits

He implanted the seeds of affection

 That hearts and souls flourished with

Jubilation, peace, love and harmony;

The human brutes; but adorned the Christ

With crown of thorns and crucified body

Hence the earth trembled at this cruelty

The planets too pulsated  in the skies

The thunder storm disrupted setting

In that gloomy sinister night it was

Christ’s blood that lighted the lamps

Everywhere Christ pious blood dribbled

There only life witnessed his divine piety

Flowers blossomed and spring bloomed

Jesus carrying his crucifix is steadfast

Following his footsteps the disciples

Enlighten life with peace and harmony

KARBALA

Hussein prostrated himself to be beheaded

He proved the extreme height of divine love

Seeing the intensity of thirst of Prophet’s clan

Hussein never then laid a hand on water can

Every opportunity was unveiled by Hussein

Of; sacrifice, endurance, serenity and death

Life was shattered and scattered in pieces

Hussein glorified the spirit of existence

Rose scent that flows in Muslim’s essence

Was planted in desert of Karbala by Hussein

What so ever pledge be of the loved Prophet

With Allah; was proved factual by Hussein

Whenever the loyal incident is remembered

Razia heaved a sigh in gloominess of Hussein

SALAAM

Human relations, interpersonal relations take up a wide field.  It encompasses all of the relationships among human beings.

Islam places great emphasis on manners and on the proper way to deal with others, whether they are Muslims or not. Relations between people are very important in Islam, and maintaining good relations with others should be a main priority of a practicing Muslim. In fact, Islam teaches that Prophet Mohammad (p.b.u.h) said: “I have been sent to perfect the best of manners”. He summarized the goal of his entire message into the perfection of the best of manners. The following is just a sample of some of the teachings of Islam regarding manners and relationships with others.

Smiling: Islam even goes to the extent of rewarding Muslims for smiling in the face of others! Smiling when others look at you is regarded as a form of charity for which Muslims get rewarded. This is why Muslims usually smile and shake hands when they meet, and they hug if they have not seen one another for a long time. Muslims are also instructed to greet each other when they see each other with the best possible greeting.

Friendship: Islam takes friendship to a higher level, referring to Muslims as brothers and sisters, and expecting them to treat each other as such. A Muslim is expected to wish for others that which they wish for themselves. Also, a Muslim is expected to give honest advice to friends and to be there for them and help them whenever possible. Muslims are forbidden from abandoning or boycotting a friend with whom they have had a disagreement for more than three days. After the three days, they are expected to forgive their friend and resume the friendship.

Greeting with salaam is different from other greetings such as “good morning” or “good day.”  The word salaam has a connection with faith. When we greet a person as “As-salaamu alaikum,” we tell him “May you be in paradise.”  It has such an inclusive meaning: “I wish you peace and tranquility in this life.  May your body be healthy and free of pains and discomfort?  May Almighty Allah place you to the abode May Almighty Allah provide us with the means to adorn ourselves with the manners of the Prophet.  May He keep us observant of these principles in our interactions within our family, with our relatives, with our neighbors, friends and with our brothers and sisters in Islam, in our business, and in our social life!
May He grant you His consent, happiness in this life and in the hereafter!  May he place you among those whom are honored by His Beauty in His Paradise!  May He reward you with the best of the rewards.

May Allah be pleased with you! Amen

old man

The speedy car stopped running over the old man with a screech.

Hearing the loud shrill people gathered from nearby and surrounded the smashed car.

The driver died at the spot. He was immediately taken to hospital in the car that was following him

But an old frail figure was is torn rags and  broken bones and profusely bleeding. He died after being involved in a collision with a car while crossing the road
His face was full of blood, cuts and bruises. People watched him trying to recognize him. Then suddenly one of the boy from the crowd shouted saying, “Oh its Ishaq Baba, I know him”

People stepped forward to see Ishaq Baba who was a friend of all. His words echoed in their ears, “I was among those hard working laborers who crushed stones under the scorching sun with our hands and laid the foundation of this one kilo meter road. We made it smooth like butter for the speedy cars to flow on it”

It was now Ishaq who made the road butter smooth when he was alive  and his blood made it colorful ———–
